4x12 on top double top plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a fire damage two level house.  The fire damaged area is located upper level and the existing will be replaced with a new roof.  Interior drywall and exterior siding will be removed maybe the sheathing can be saved.  The owner would like to raise the ceiling about 11.25".  I could place a new 4x12 on top entire existing double top plate.  
Does anyone ever done this extended ceiling height before?
